Dhivehi Rayyithunge Party (DRP) leader Mohamed Nasheed (Colonel) has purchased a residence in a prominent location in London, UK for 2.8 million Sterling Pounds.
The Ambassador of Maldives at Thailand, Nasheed told Avas his purchase of residence from West London came through profits made by his resorts shares and stressed the transaction was not discreet.
Nasheed also mentioned the purchase of residence from a foreign land is not a crime or an offense and he does not see why it should be directed with scrutiny or media attention. He also said he does not hold any government position which would facilitate him to exploit government finances or funding so the room for corruption does not come to question.
The DRP leader has shares in the resort operated at Lhaviyani atoll Kanifushi by Atmosphere brand.
